Server log files

When you visit our website, the company we use to operate the website processes and stores technical information about the terminal device used by you (operating system, screen resolution and other non-personal features) and about the browser (version, language settings), in particular the public IP address of the computer you use to visit our website, including the date and time of access. The IP address is a unique numeric address under which your terminal device sends/retrieves data to/from the Internet. Unless you share data that allows us to identify you while using our website, our service provider or we are generally unable to know to whom an IP address belongs. Furthermore, a user may be identified if legal action is taken against them (e.g. in the case of attacks on website) and we become aware of their identity during the investigation. As a rule, you need not worry about us being able to assign your IP address to you.

Our service provider uses the processed data in a non-personally identifiable manner for statistical purposes so that we can trace what kind of terminal devices, with which settings, are used to access our website, and then optimize them accordingly. These statistics do not contain any personally identifiable data. The legal basis for compiling the statistics is Article 6 (1) f) GDPR.

The IP address is further used so that you can technically access and use our website, and to detect and ward off attacks against our service provider or our website. Unfortunately, attacks designed to harm website operators or their users (e.g. to prevent access, spy on data, distribute malware [e.g. viruses], or for other unlawful purposes) are repeatedly carried out. Such attacks would impair the proper functioning of the data centre of the company we have commissioned, the use of our website or its features, and the security of visitors to our website. The IP address and the time of access are processed to ward off such attacks. By means of this processing, we – by way of our service provider – pursue the legitimate interest of ensuring the functionality of our website and preventing unlawful attacks against us and our website visitors. The legal basis for processing is Article 6 (1) f) GDPR.

The stored IP data is deleted (by means of anonymization) as soon as it is no longer required for the detection of or defence against an attack.

Disclosure of data to third parties

In principle, we do not disclose the personal data communicated to us to third parties (i.e. especially not for advertising purposes).

For the operation of these Internet pages or for the provision of products / services, however, we work together with service providers (processors). It may happen that such service providers become aware of personal data. We carefully select our service providers - particularly with regard to data protection and data security - and take all measures required under data protection law for permissible data processing.

 

Data processing outside the EU

We do process your personal data inside the EU/or Switzerland. For Switzerland, the EU has set an appropriate level of data protection by Decision 2000/518 / EC. However, some of our service providers, whose plug-ins and tools we use, process data outside the EU. This will be clarified within this data privacy policy in the information about the plug-ins/tools used.

We ensure the appropriate level of data protection in the context of participation in the so-called Privacy Shield and the measures taken by the service provider for data protection and data security.

 

Introduction to Social Media

On our website, we offer social media content (such as Facebook, Youtube, etc.). In the context of the use of such content, your data may be forwarded to the providers of such content.

We would like to point out that user data may be processed outside the European Union. This can result in risks for the user since, for example, it could make it more difficult to enforce the rights of the user. With regard to US providers that are certified under the Privacy Shield, we would like to point out that by doing so they commit themselves to comply with the data protection standards of the EU.

We would also like to point out that if you use the contents of our providers, your data will be processed for market and advertising research purposes. This may result in specific advertising placement after you have used these social media services.

The processing of users' personal data is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests in the effective information of users and communication with users in accordance with Article  6 (1) f) GDPR.

If the users are requested by the respective providers of the platforms to consent to the aforementioned data processing, the legal basis for the processing is Article 6 (1) a), and Article 7 GDPR.

The possibility of an objection (Opt-out) is explained below for individual social media contents.

 

Facebook-Plugins (Like & Share-Button)

Our site uses social plugins ("plugins") from facebook.com. Provider is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. This plugin is used based on our legitimate interest in the analysis, improvement and economic operation of our business (Article 6 (1) f) GDPR.

The facebook plugin is easily recognizable by the typical signs such as logo, like-button or thumbs up sign.

When you click on a facebook button, a direct connection to facebook servers is established and at least the following information is transmitted: Information that you are on our website; assignment of your activity (e.g. "link") to your facebook account.

We do not know with certainty how long facebook stores data and to what extent it is processed or passed on.

Google Analytics analysis tool

We use in the framework of a data processing agreement a service provided by Google LLC (“Google”), Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, possibly via the Google Tag Manager Google Analytics. As the order processor, Google uses a so-called “cookie” for this – a small text file stored on your computer by your browser. This cookie provides Google with information about which website you have accessed and, in particular, the following information: browser type/version, operating system used, technical information about the operating system and the browser as well as the public IP address of the computer you are using. We use Google Analytics in such a way that your IP address is only used in anonymous form. This anonymization occurs after notification from Google in the European Union or a Member State of the EEA. The full IP address will only be sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there in exceptional cases. According to Google, the IP address is anonymized before it is ever stored on a permanent data carrier. For details, please refer to Google’s privacy policy available at: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

Google Analytics allows us to compile usage statistics for our website, as well as demographic data on visitors and their user behaviour, in non-personally identifiable form. Statistics are also compiled to help us better understand how visitors find our site, so that we can improve our search engine optimisation and advertising efforts. This processing enables us to pursue the legitimate interest to be able to improve our website as well as our advertising measures (legal basis: Article 6 (1) f) GDPR).

You can find information on how to opt out of using Google Analytics at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Google is a member of the PrivacyShield Agreement and has entered into an order processing contract with us for Google Analytics. Pseudonymous data will be deleted after 14 months.

 

Google Adwords / Conversion Tracking

This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google").

Within the framework of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser stores on the user's computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and do not serve the personal identification of the users. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was directed to that page.

Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, AdWords customer do not receive any information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to this use by easily deactivating the Google Conversion Tracking cookie in your Internet browser under User Settings. They will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

Conversion cookies" are stored on the basis of a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both the website and its advertising (legal basis: Article 6 (1) f) GDPR).

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

 

Google Remarketing / Double Click

Our sites use Google Analytics Remarketing features in conjunction with the cross-device features of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. Provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

This feature allows you to link advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing with the cross-device features of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-related, personalised advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behaviour on one terminal (e.g. mobile phone) can also be displayed on another of your terminals (e.g. Tablet or PC).

If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browser history to your Google Account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalized advertising messages can be displayed on any device on which you sign in with your Google Account.

To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated user IDs that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create target audiences for cross-device advertising.

You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by opting out of personalized advertising in your Google Account by following this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

The data collected in your Google Account is only collected on the basis of your consent, which you can give or revoke at Google (Article 6 (1) a) GDPR). In the case of data collection processes that are not merged into your Google Account (e.g. because you do not have a Google Account or have objected to the merging), the data collection is based on Article 6 (1) f) GDPR. The justified interest results from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymous analysis of the website visitors for advertising purposes.

Further information and the data protection regulations can be found in Google's privacy policy at: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.

 

Youtube

We have included YouTube videos on our website. Provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

This plugin is used on the basis of our legitimate interest in the improvement and economic operation of our business (Article 6 (1) f) GDPR).

The embedding of Youtube videos in our portal does not take place on the basis of the "extended data protection mode" of Youtube. Youtube therefore receives and stores data before you click on a corresponding video. Further information can be found under the Youtube Privacy Policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=en .

The playback of videos involves considerable amounts of data, especially when different visitors to the website are watching videos in parallel. Furthermore, the playback of videos is accelerated and thus their playback quality is improved if the videos are played from a server that is as close as possible to the visitor of the website. Due to the considerable technical effort involved, we cannot guarantee this ourselves. We have therefore integrated the videos via Youtube. The legal basis is Article 6 (1) f) GDPR.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, providing a guarantee of compliance with European privacy laws: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI.

If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on Flowplayer, you must log out before visiting the website. Flowplayer stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the design of its website to meet your needs.
